Goodbye to Ralph Moore

Ralph Moore, the rose breeder who virtually single handedly created modern miniature roses, died yesterday at age 102. Nearly every miniature rose in the world was either bred by him, or is descended from a rose bred by him. An astonishingly brilliant, creative breeder who will be sadly missed.

Ralph Moore was more than the king of miniature roses, he was a king among men. He loved and inspired countless people during his lifetime.

He was a true joy giver and a gift from God in my life.
